Recruit the help of ruffians on Occulm Island! Lead them to mine a big haul!

In order to make things out of metal, you will need ore ingredients such as copper and iron. While it is difficult for the protagonist to do this alone, the island’s ruffians are quite skilled when it comes to mining. By leading them to lodes and building a bar to restore their spirits, you will be able to mine tons of ores with each passing day.
